Jo’s favorite Thanksgiving recipe: Mashed Potatoes
“This is a tip, not a recipe. Use your favorite mashed potato recipe and add a little truffle oil to the mix. It will take your potatoes from delicious to extraordinary. Make sure you don’t use too much! The oil is really strong. Start with just a few drops.”
